There are claims Gene Huber was planted in the crowd
Mr Trump told the crowd he recognised the man after seeing him being interviewed by the media before his rally started.
The supporter was identified as Gene Huber, who has spoke to a number of US broadcasting companies, including Fox News and CNN.
Gene Huber posted that Trump was calling him on his Facebook page
Yet social media users were quick to claim Trump inviting Mr Huber on stage was a carefully orchestrated ploy.
CNN’s Jacki Schechner claimed Mr Huber was planted in the crowd.
She tweeted: “No way Secret Service would have let Gene Huber on stage w/o his being vetted. Huber just said he salutes a box of paraphernalia every day.”
